Cal Answers HR At A Glance
Presenter: Mark Chiang

The Cal Answers “At a Glance” dashboard is a tool designed to give managers and strategic planners a birds’ eye view of their unit. Data for the report is drawn from the HCM human resources system to gain insights into gender, ethnicity, represented/non-represented, age, appointment type, and job level.

Online Monitoring

Campus Monitoring Norms
Presenter: Lisa Ho

The recently approved UCB Privacy and Online Monitoring Policy defines a governance framework for network monitoring practices, and formalizes long-standing practices for balancing the value and potential privacy harms of online monitoring. In addition to requiring meaningful notice to users of monitoring practices, the policy involves establishing a set of Campus Monitoring Norms. Help define what practices fall into the bucket of “norms” that are accepted without review and which practices require a Privacy Balancing Analysis. Bring monitoring examples from your environment and vote on other practices from around campus.

Campus Shared Services IT

CSS IT Performance Metrics ProgramCSS IT Performance Metrics Program
Presenter: Noah McGee

Campus tools like ServiceNow and BigFix are generating huge amounts of data every day. How do we leverage this data to build an accurate story of how our teams are performing? Can charts and dashboards be used to drive good habits and improve a team’s performance? What tools are available to automate gathering data and displaying metrics? Join CSS IT to see the way we are attempting to answer these questions by closely examining data generated by our on-campus desktop support teams. And also see how we are using metrics as a tool to discuss our team’s performance. We will look at charts generated by ServiceNow and show some ways to use Google’s G Suite to collect, display, and distribute metrics.

Finance Dashboards in Cal Answers
Presenters: Jenny Su and Tanaiia Hall

Cal Answers is releasing two finance dashboards for operational and planning uses by Finance staff via OBIEE. They are intended to meet the business needs of managing finances and planning the use of restricted funds in all units across campus, and to make it easier to find and share information by leveraging native OBIEE functionality. The Financial Management Reporting dashboard presents financial data from the EDW and reconciles to both BAIRS and CalPlanning, as well as BFS at the transaction level. This dashboard, along with the Gift/Endowment Reporting dashboard, will provide global access to all approved financial users for the first time. This is a big win in an effort to increase efficient collaboration between units across campus. The Gift/Endowment Reporting dashboard includes both financial and non-financial data from the EDW and from the Cal Advancement Data System (CADS), such as fund terms and purpose codes. CADS uses Ellucian and is the database of record for the UC Berkeley advancement community. It contains records on more than one million individuals and organizations who are campus donors, prospects, students, alumni, faculty, members of campus organizations, and other friends of the University.

IT Monitoring for UC Berkeley
Presenters: Peter Collins and Steve Aguirre

While most IT infrastructure and application support teams currently have some form of monitoring solution for their respective services, there is no system in place that allows for a holistic view of the entire operational environment. The IT Monitoring Service is intended to provide a central coordination point for the prompt and effective resolution and communication of IT system outages. This service utilizes the Groundwork Open Source monitoring platform, housed in the IST Data Center, to consolidate all critical systems monitoring into a single pane of glass. This overhead view allows CSS IT Service Desk and responding IT Personnel greater visibility into the overall health of all mission critical services.

kraken: Lecture Recording

kraken: Berkeley Law Lecture Capture System
Presenters: Cameron Bailey and Dino Johnson

Our new tool, kraken, provides a modular infrastructure for the complete lecture recording workflow; from scheduling to distribution, including encoding, processing and publishing. We leverage some off-the-shelf technologies and developed some components in-house where we can provide added-value such as automation, processing and integration between sub-systems. Scheduling uses Google Calendar events to automate lecture recording and encoding while providing event notifications via Slack and in-class recording lights controlled via IFTTT. Both the instructor’s camera and the presented content are simultaneously recorded with Wirecast. Processing and automation are achieved with scripting and Cycling ‘74 Max and published to our LMS (via Kaltura Video Platform) where students can view recorded lectures using an interactive player. Finally, all recordings and metadata are archived using Box.

Caliper Analytics

Poster presented at IT Summit 2017.Learning Data and Analytics -- An AWS Implementation
Presenters: Oliver Heyer and Sandeep Jayaprakash

ETS has developed a multi-tenant AWS-native big data processing architecture focussed on ingesting and analyzing user events derived from online educational software and systems. Its centerpiece is a data repository, the Learning Record Store (LRS), that holds events describing system learning activities in a standard format and vocabulary. Future development of a data lake is planned to store non-conformant user events derived from other key administrative systems students and faculty interact with. Standard and non-standard events can be queried to create data sets made available to academic researchers via API, feed role-specific visualizations, and drive other real-time applications. The architecture includes a privacy dashboard that discloses to users which of their learning data is being collected, how it is being used, and provides an opt in/out data use toggle.

Berkeley Haas Panopto site

Lecture Capture at Berkeley-Haas
Presenters: Robert Bazydlo and Eric Mayer

Berkeley-Haas has employed Panopto as both a video content management and lecture capture system. We've integrated the technology directly into our new classroom building Chou Hall and have employed a variety of other methods to integrate existing classroom spaces, both with and without installed recording equipment.

IT Leadership Program

Poster presented at IT Summit 2017.Practices to Lead From Where You Are
Presenter: Kimberly Carl, Dave Browne, Shawn Smith, Michelle Bautista, Kimberly Carl, Noah Beil, and Jon Hays

The notion of being a leader can create doubt and confusion. One might ask: Am I a leader? If I don’t have a leadership role then how can I lead from where I am? What do I need to know or do to be seen as a leader? Many of the practices leaders apply in their work are easy to grasp conceptually and yet challenging to apply in one’s work. By incorporating leadership practices into our work - we lead from where we are. Our team will present some of the leadership practices highlighted in the IT Leadership Program and engage people about the benefits of using these practices.

Telling Our Story, Telling Researchers' Stories
Presenters: Quinn Dombrowski and Steve Masover

What does your organization do, and what impact does it have on campus? Telling our IT story is a crucial part of rendering our work visible to users and campus leadership alike, but most groups don’t have resources for dedicated communications staff. This poster will describe Research IT’s two-pronged approach to communications: 1) involving all staff in writing IT stories directly relevant to their work, and 2) working with student writers to develop “researcher profiles” that highlight active research projects and describe how Research IT’s services support that work. We will also provide hand-outs with example articles and the Research IT style guide.
